    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Constant learning. Excellent benefits. Technology savvy. Great people to work with. Team and individual environment. Innovative. Adapt to change being the only constant.

    Cons

    Not many. I suppose field communication to headquarters isn’t always the strength.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to communicate up. Improve review system for both team and individual. Look more and be open to outside startup technology companies improve communication with local start ups around the world.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, one gets to work with smart and extraordinary people. One can develop a deep understanding of specific Microsoft Technologies.

    Cons

    Constant reorgs, radical diversity hiring philosophy, management decisions go from one extreme to another, no real middle ground. Tier 1 managers don't manage. Lots of back stabbing due to the stack ranking review process.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the constant reorgs, have tier one/two managers actually manage, go to a more rational diversity hiring plan. Don't allow empire building among corporate executives at the expense of customers and employees.
